Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


In MM Docket No. 91-137, the Commission denied an application for review filed by Smith Communications, licensee of Station WZJS(FM), Channel 264A, Banner Elk, North Carolina, of the Memorandum Opinion and Order, 61 FR 20,490, published May 7, 1996. The Commission denied review because it found no reason to depart from staff's reasoning set forth in the Memorandum Opinion and Order. It found that the staff had fully considered and rejected each of Smith's contentions that irregular terrain would prevent full signal coverage by the proposed upgraded Jefferson, North Carolina station. Additionally, since the release of the Memorandum Opinion and Order, a construction permit had been granted for an actual transmitter site at a location different from the theoretical one used previously. The Commission reexamined the expanded coverage area from that site and found the coverage to be adequate and of similar size to that predicted using the theoretical site. With this action, the proceeding is terminated.
